In the poem,
there was a pitch black woman dressed in a slow tornado
who carried out the tune of “Pretend” (2000-present) with Huntsville, TX
and The Soul Lifter’s Gospel Choir.
That was with reference to a reviving crew of singers
at a service I regularly visited while attending Sam Houston State University.
I’m pretty sure they have no idea I exist
but I can hardly wait to see if they’ll join me
at my first and only show at SHSU since I graduated in 1997.
Also, AUSTIN, NEW ORLEANS, LAFAYETTE and MINNEAPOLIS are added February dates on the Riled Up and Wasted On Light world tour! “So is Illinois,” Spoke Anne Montana… (awful… forgive me that far reach… too far).
